No More Notifications, for Now

No More Notifications, for Now

We were using a service called Roost for many months, although the service was great and I personally was an involved beta tester reporting bugs and performance issues, the company behind Roost decided all of a sudden to make money with their tool. Don’t get me wrong, this is a great idea and they should make money from their work.

Change of mind, an Expensive One

Plans start at 400$. I do not have this kind of money for a notification service so I will be pulling the plug at the end of this month on this tool. If it was a few bucks per month, I would have gladly paid for it, but not at 33$US per month (don’t forget, we are Canadians, so this would be 4 billion $CA ;)).

So for now, until I either build my own system or find a Roost alternative that is not that expensive we will turn them off completely. The Roost bell and sidebar will be gone soon. If you know of a great alternative, please tell us!
